Lizzie and Nancy went to town on the cars. It has proved a very disagreeable, rainy day. I finished writing a letter to Jennie Shedd. Nancy came home by the evening train, brought me some new water colors and brushes.
Jennie Shedd is Jennie Dawes Shedd, Julia's niece, who was also the sister of Rufus, Ephraim, Kate and Lucy Dawes. She was living in Persia with her missionary husband.
